: Anyone else here into the Heuer and TAG Heuer quartz dive
: Heuer began to focus on dive watches in the late 1970s and by 1983
: offered dozens of models of quartz dive watches. Heuer (and TAG

: most models available in four sizes – small / ladies (28 mm);
: mid-size (32 mm); full-size / mens (38 mm) and jumbo (42 mm).
: The quartz dive watches continued to dominate the TAG Heuer
: catalogs into the 1990s, often being credited with carrying the
: brand when making mechanical chronographs was a difficult
